Comments[edit]

Love genres? Death genres? Even the "film genres" page makes no reference to either. 68.144.92.199 (talk) 18:34, 4 June 2011 (UTC)Tyrannorabbit

I agree. I have updated the template to reflect groupings that are more consistent with how genres are discussed. Osubuckeyeguy (talk) 00:20, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Nudity in film[edit]

In what way is Nudity in film a Film genre? קולנואני (talk) 22:42, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

If you read the linked article, you'll see that nudist fims and nudie-cuties are recognized types of exploitation films popularized in the U.S. I have updated the link so it takes people directly to these sections. Osubuckeyeguy (talk) 06:32, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
Okay. All clear now. Thanks :) קולנואני (talk) 21:33, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Audience, Format or Production[edit]

It should be noted that target audience, film format or type of production have nothing to do with a film's genre, since a genre is categorization of narrative elements. קולנואני (talk) 22:45, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

The definition of a "film genre" is difficult to pin down since there are lots of interpretations of what that term means (the article on this topic notes that some film theorists do not consider audience and format to be genres, as you suggest, but common usage of this term does often include these factors. The template has been designed to be inclusive, rather than exclusive, consistent with the approach in the main article. Osubuckeyeguy (talk) 06:32, 18 August 2011 (UTC)
To my knowledge, these types are refetred to as "non-genres", instead of "genres". קולנואני (talk) 21:32, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Animation is an art form; NOT a genre![edit]

There have been a lot of people who say that animation is a medium, but Wikipedia here puts in as a genre of film, but animation is not a genre; Hollywood just treats it like that. That's why I've been taking out of film and TV genres categories or pages because it's NOT a genre. There are plenty of people I know who hate seeing animation being called a genre (Brad Bird is a good example). Animation Historian Jerry Beck said "It's an art form. But Hollywood treats it as a genre". Also, TV Tropes lists animation as a medium. You know what's a genre? Fantasy and comedy. Those ARE genres that animation, film and comics can do very well. Why? Because they're mediums; art forms, if you will. So please, can we take animation out of film genres?Joseph1357 (talk) 20:12, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
